i need to truncate and load data into informix table .. is there a way by which i can used dbload to do it i am using a shell script to load the data .. but it always appends into the table...also i am trying to do a upshift of character data while loading itself .. but that throws error ... as syntax mismatch while using the utility.. my control file is as below



"control.file" 3 lines, 83 characters
FILE "file.unl" DELIMITER '|' 3;
INSERT INTO TAB1(name,age,salary)
VALUES (UPPER(f01),f02,f03);
